Ah, donuts – one of the automotive world's purest forms of hooliganism. We've all done 'em, simply because every once in a while, it's just plain fun to light up a car's back end and fling it around in a circle.

Fun as they may be, donuts aren't necessarily all that fun to watch. After all, one car spinning in circles certainly loses its charm after a while. But what about seventy cars spinning in smoke-filled circles? Now that's something.

Earlier this week, over 70 vehicles showed up at Infineon Raceway in order to break the Guinness World Record for the largest number of cars performing donuts successfully. Check out what ensued in the video after the break, complete with epic battle background music.

      Would have been sooo much cooler if you could actually hear the engine and tire noise. ITs only marginally cool with the music covering up all the beautiful exhaust notes.

      Don't these idiots have jobs? They have too much free time on their hands. I just wasted 2 minutes of my life.

      It is Lux Aeterna by Clint Mansell, which is, yes, from Requiem for a Dream. This is the full orchestral version. IIRC, the version in the film is just Kronos Quartet, solo.

      The music is Requiem For A Dream, by X-Ray Dog I think.

      Waste of fuel, tires, cars, and my time.

      we had over 85 cars come, alot broke down, 75 actually completed donuts for over 15seconds, 67 of us completed donuts for over 50 seconds. this video is just a artful way the editor took his account of the event. there are a ton more videos on youtube with no music, and a birds eye view of all the cars going in unison. we were here to break a record already set 2 times before, we just did it larger than before. PLUS we were already drifting infineon raceway that day, and this was a "intermission" so to speak. to ignorantly ask a question "do these people have jobs" well... no. gas, tires and labor is all free in america, we all know that....

      Guiness should not even be acknowleding this attempt at such a stupid wastefull record. It looked like just an amateur free-for-all in the video. No real way of knowing by the video if all the cars were spinning at the same time to set a record. Perhaps if they arranged it so all the cars were spinning around each other like some sort of coordinated drill team, then it might have been interesting. But as it was, the video was just boring to watch and a big waste of money for the drivers... but yet I would have liked to been there selling tires to these idiots.

      My friend got fined $5,000 for reckless driving and might face jail time. He and a couple people were drifting in a hidden empty parking lot but there was security that ended up calling the cops.
